"After being in power for 22 years, Gambian President Yahya Jammeh was handed a shock defeat in the presidential election from Adama Barrow. Jammeh accepted his defeat and announced his decision to step down after he obtained 212,099 votes against Barrow’s 263,515 votes. After conceding defeat, he said, 'Gambians have decided that I should take the backseat. You have voted for someone to lead our country. This is our country, and I wish you all the best.'"
